(p.73) 3 Sinophone Mobilities
Queer Chinese Cultures and Mobilities

This chapter considers the intermingled cultural mobility and geographical mobility in the imagination and enactment of movements. It engages (and critiques) mobility scholarship and Sinophone scholarship to analyze border-crossing queer migrations and cultural flows between mainland China and Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Chinese community in Malaysia. By developing and problematizing the idea of Sinophone mobilities, this chapter endeavors to shift our focus from post-migration settlement to a broader range of mobilized migrating experiences. The analysis extends to the flows and counterflows of queer cultures and migrants between China and the Sinophone sphere, in which China itself has become a site for Sinophone cultural productions.

Keywords:   Sinophone, Queer Sinophonicity, Malaysia, Taiwan, Cultural flows, Queer publics, Queer spaces, Queer film club
